Salt-N-Pepa sat for an interview with Ok! magazine and reflected on more than thirty years of experience in the music industry. The groundbreaking group talks women in rap feeling like they had something to prove back in the day, at a time when rappers were questioning if hip-hop would even last.
“It’s been one of those things in hip-hop, believe it or not, it was a question of would hip-hop even last, then in the later time it was like, damn, we gon’ end up in Vegas one day,” Denton said. “And that used to be a joke — it was like Vegas was where your career goes to die, and now that’s where you go to live,” James added, referencing the group’s Las Vegas residency.
All these years later, they’re still in the game despite what a hater had to say.
“Women being women in hip hop at a time when it wasn’t that many women, we felt like we had more to prove,” James commented. “There was a lot of thumbs down, ‘they’re not gonna last,’ that type of thing… so we had to go hard in the paint. And, for me personally, I was in college. I always say school is great, but it’s not for everyone. For me, it wasn’t working out and I always wanted to be an entertainer, so it was just… there was no plan B for me. When you think that way, it’s like do this or die. That’s how I felt.”

Sometimes you can prove an alleged event did happen, but you generally can’t prove something did not happen. For example, if police have clear video footage of a crime in progress, several direct witnesses, and DNA evidence too, you can say they proved the defendant did the crime. But if your neighbor says an angel visited him in his bedroom at night, and there were no witnesses or physical traces left behind, you can’t prove it didn’t happen. All you can say for sure is that you don’t have any evidence of it happening.
So if you want to drive a political opponent crazy, allege that he or she did something evil, provide no direct evidence, and force them to do the impossible: Prove it didn’t happen.
Consider the Russian collusion investigation. We have seen no conclusive evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia to win the election. But the mere existence of an investigation into the allegations, along with lots of “Russia, Russia, Russia” news coverage on tangential topics, primes us to think “Where there is this much smoke, there must be fire.” To escape this trap, President Trump would need to do the impossible. He would need to prove he didn’t collude with Russia in some secret way that left no evidence behind. And you can’t prove a negative, as the saying goes.
So how do you defend yourself when you can’t prove something didn’t happen? One way is to turn the same trick against your attackers. An emerging story this week is that Republican Representative Devin Nunes wrote a secret memo detailing alleged various abuses to the FISA system that are somehow related to the same FBI and DOJ players who worked on the Russian collusion case. The public hasn’t seen the memo, politicians are barred from discussing it in detail, and there’s a good chance we will never see it in its full context. The longer we hear about the secret memo without knowing its contents, and the more speculation that gathers around it, the more the public will be thinking “Where there is this much smoke, there must be fire.”
You can’t prove a negative. But you can return the favor and put your opponent in the same position.

Responding to Ben Carson’s remarks this week that being gay is a choice, columnist Dan Savage invited the Republican presidential prospect to “suck my dick” to prove it.
Carson on Wednesday told CNN that prisoners are an example of how homosexuality can be a choice, so Savage challenged Carson in an open letter:
If being gay is a choice, prove it. Choose it. Choose to be gay yourself. Show America how that’s done, Ben, show us how a man can choose to be gay. Suck my dick. Name the time and the place and I’ll bring my dick and a camera crew and you can suck me off and win the argument.
Carson later apologized for his remarks, but not before catching major heat for his exchange with CNN’s Chris Cuomo. He said in the interview there was no comparison between civil rights and gay rights because citizens have no choice of their race, while homosexuality is “absolutely” a choice. “A lot of people who go into prison, go into prison straight, and when they come out they’re gay,” he said.
In his essay, published March 4 in The Stranger, Savage, who writes a syndicated sex column, wrote how religious conservatives use the “choice” argument to deny civil rights to the gay community.
“Like truthers (9/11 was an inside job), birthers (Barack Obama was born in Kenya), and deathers (Osama bin Laden is alive and well and living in West Hollywood), choicers are another group deranged conspiracy theorists who can’t be dissuaded by science or evidence or facts. They insist that being gay is a conscious choice that a person makes,” he wrote.
Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who recently finished fourth among potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates in a straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference, has previously compared homosexuality with bestiality and pedophilia. He apologized for those comments as well.

The Met Gala serves as an opportunity to see some of the biggest names in the film, music and fashion industries dressed to the nines and completely decked in glam. Thanks to professional photogs, there were plenty of gorgeous shots to go around.
These days, however, social media gives us what we want even more — an inside look into what’s really going on both inside the event and at the after parties. Thankfully, a slew of those photos have surfaced too, and from the looks of at least one, the Met Gala is way more fun than you might think.
Lena Dunham and Shailene Woodley, two of Hollywood’s sweethearts and what we can only hope are budding best friends, took a break from the flashing lights to make some funny faces, which Rodarte then posted to their Instagram. (Woodley wore the designer to the event.)
It’s so refreshing to see these ladies cutting a little loose at such a high profile event. We just hope Ms. Wintour didn’t catch them goofing off. Something tells us that wouldn’t go over so well with her white-tie theme for the evening.
